Islamic History

After all, three of its major written languages – Arabic, Persian, and Ottoman Turkish – functioned as the authorial/scribal language from the Atlantic to Central Asia. Even in the earliest days of Orientalistik, philologically minded German scholars largely ignored the question of authorship....

Before the invasion of Islamic lands by the Mongol armies, Muslims had already confronted the Crusaders. But the confrontation between Muslims and Crusaders did not force Muslims to reconsider the understanding of their classic Islamic jurisprudence....

 

On this day, Allah Almighty accepted the repentance and plea of Hazrat Adam (peace be upon him) for forgiveness, saved Hazrat Jonah (peace be upon him) from the abdomen of the fish, Hazrat Abraham from Nimrod’s fire, blessed Hazrat Solomon with his kingdom and rescued Hazrat Moses and the Israelites from Pharaoh by creating a path in the sea...

 

Most of what is now Portugal was under Islamic rule for over 500 years. In 711, Muslim armies sailed from North Africa and quickly took control of large parts of Portugal and Spain, which became known in Arabic as al-Andalus....

 

The most interesting contradiction he points to was between the widely held believe among Iraqis that there was a Zionist-American plot to wipe out their history and subdue them through prolonged occupation, versus a 23-year-old US marine's statement that, “I talked to a few Iraqis yesterday and some of them said that they didn't really like us being here. But we liberated them, so I hope they appreciate it.”...

 

The clergy took advantage of this lack of political consensus among various ethnic groups across the Empire and carved out religious identities across ethnic lines and assumed their leadership, which they enjoy till today. The Sunnis were advised to honour the history as it took shape (architect = al-Tabri), and the Shias decided to honour it as it should have taken shape (architect = al-Tabri)....

Further complicating this identity crisis was the fact that during the period of French colonization, starting in 1912, the occupying French used Christianity as a means through which to drive a wedge between Arab and Amazigh populations...

 

Amir Qasim Shah Beglar was the first person from the family to migrate to Sindh from Samarkand during the reign of Shah Hasan Arghun in 1521 AD. It is believed that the ancestors of Qasim Shah Beglar had lived in Khita, Turkistan, and developed intimate relations with the Arghuns – and hence Beglars were  later also called Arghuns.

 

But when the decline of nation is discussed, it is related to disunity, opportunism, compromise, independence and humiliating treaties with the opponents. It shows a loss of the energy and ambition to survive....

 

The Quran promises them safety (6:82), reverence (63:8), sovereignty (30:47; 3:139), triumph over adversaries (4:141), and leadership (48:28; 14:27). But their fortunes have been in decline for centuries, and they are caught in a vicious trap of disintegration with no sign of escape....

 

The Bishop threw away the sword and said, "Blessed is the soldier, blessed is the General and above all, blessed is that noble Prophet (Muhammad) whose ideal has built up men like these. It was no doubt a wrong to break the image, but it will be an immeasurably greater wrong to mangle a human face for that"...

 

Therefore, the Arabian Peninsula, of which Saudi Arabia occupies a great part, was a real crossroads of ancient civilizations. It played an important civilized, economic and political role in the periods preceding the emergence of Islam and developed greatly after its advent.

 

I have exhibited with two examples how early Muslim history, that has reached us via Ahadith and Imam al-Tibri, is chiefly responsible for breaking the spirit of Islam and causing schisms among Muslims....

The opening of the Cave of Blood came only days after authorities fully reopened the National Museum of Damascus, situated on the banks of the fabled Barada River on Shukri al-Quwatli Boulevard....

It presents a confusing, contradictory and embarrassing portrayal of the companions of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). It includes the Quranic view, but dramatizes and highlights negative details of the personalities and events too much, and clouds Qur’anic perception.....

God sent his Prophets with a code of life from time to time to remove their differences and bring them back into the fold of brotherhood (2:213). My principal issue with the current version of early Muslim history is that it brings Muslims in direct conflict with the Quran....

Muslims achieved glory when they believed in, and carried the simple and rational message of the Quran. ...

The field of Badr in imaginary voice calls us to be Badri warriors, who did not rely on weapons, but on faith, which was their might....

The Sherif of Makkah had been promised a caliphate encompassing Arab lands (McMahon Promises)

The British and French had earmarked some of these lands for themselves (Sykes-Picot)

The Zionists had been promised a homeland in Palestine (Balfour Declaration)

Maududi made an impressive start at Dar-ul-Islam as he prepared a curriculum, published a Journal, and gathered an inspired faculty. Maududi’s task was to establish an academic and research centre to prepare a community of competent scholars to produce works of outstanding quality on Islam. He instead went about making it a nerve centre of political ‘Islamic revival’ in India, through an ideal religious community, providing leaders and laying the foundation for a religious movement....

 

Allama Iqbal’s guide to reviving Islam is ingenious. He believed that the Quran is the only reality in Islam. And to understand true Islam one does not need anything except the Quran; and to understand Quran, one does not need anything except the Quran because, according to God, it explains itself. Since, similar to a great poetry, the Quran is untranslatable, its real meaning can only be established by ascertaining the meaning of the ‘key words’ in the Quran which carry invariable concepts within them….

The loop of this intrigue was completed through the explanation or exegesis (Tafseer) of the Quran. All three strands of this scheme were shaped into an entrenched doctrine and anyone attempting to disagree with the officially recognised version or Imam of his time or deviate from this ‘established’ tradition later was persecuted by the authorities and shoved outside the pale of Islam by the debauch clergy. All conspiracy was put into motion by highly intelligent and skilled Magian ‘coverts’ with intentional or insightless support from their royal patrons, corrupt clergy, and pertinent assistance from other religions.

Islam is not a new religion. It was not promulgated because people were not praying, fasting or giving charity. It came to revive the same message brought by other messengers of God with minor additions due to human cognitive development. It was about equality, justice, fair distribution of wealth and establishing a direct relationship of God and man (through Quran). However, this did not suit the political and religious establishment because they wanted to subjugate the masses and become self-decreed intermediaries to God....

The Asawirah struck again in 40 AH when Hazrat Ali was leading a prayer in Kufa. A Magian, Jamshed Khorasani, aka Ibn-e-Muljim, stabbed him with a double-edged dagger. Hazrat Ali died three days later. Then Jaban bin Hormuzan, son of the mastermind behind Hazrat Umar’s assassination, made an unsuccessful attempt on Hazrat Hasan’s life in 46 AH. Hazrat Hasan was poisoned but other accounts suggest that he died of tuberculosis in 49 AH...

 

When it was time to pray, Sophronius offered ?Umar a space in the church for the Muslims to pray, but ?Umar refused out of fear that doing so would possibly endanger the status of the church, as future generations of Muslims may have taken that site as a permanent place of worship. Instead, according to some narrations, the Muslims cleared a space outside the church and performed their prayer there. Other narrations suggest the Muslims prayed at the site of al-Aqsa instead, a short distance away....
